Editorial Reviews

"The '1948 Palestinians' Palestinian citizens of Israel have been largely disregarded and deserted in the tragic affairs of the Middle East. Nida Shoughry puts them at center stage, describing and explaining their multiple responses to life in Israel whether acquiescence, participation, or resistance. This book is essential reading for those who want to understand the most urgent, complex, and tragic relationship in contemporary international politics." - Ken Booth, senior research associate, Aberystwyth University, Wales and editor of International Relations
